It’s almost the weekend and I am looking forward to having a nice chilled out family weekend. Hoping the weather is a bit better so we can go on a family adventure somewhere and ignore that both kids once again have a cough and sniffle.
This week has been a relaxing one. I think finding balance has really done us all good. My journey on the juicing is still ongoing. I did find the three detox a little of a belly ache, literally but I am enjoying having one juice a day now. I didn’t think I would like the taste of it but I really do. Fingers crossed I stick with it, the machines are not easy to clean!
So here is what we have been up to and loving this week for our #littleloves of happiness.
I have been trying to catch up on blogs I love and my commenting in December was poor (sorry everyone) but I am on a mission to make up for it. I have loved these posts this week…
- Sometimes It’s Hard To Be A Woman – More Than Toast
- Style In Your City – Wild & Grizzly
- The Queen of Empty Threats – Hurrah for Gin
- Things We Love About Winter – Life At The Little Wood
I have been listening to the sound of my own voice (I know cringe) and I realized that when I try to speak louder and more clear my voice often cuts out or comes out croaky like I am about to lose it. This is not a good thing for a vlogger if I can’t speak clearly. So I have been trying to find ways to fix it. Someone said peppermint tea? Another recommended a mini microphone? I have had surgery on my vocal chords before and I am just worried I will have to do it again or worse I am losing my voice all together, forever. I know extreme! A true tragedy for a blabber mouth like me! So while I still can I will share my latest vlog with you.
I have been watching Mike & Molly. A silly USA comedy show that is only 30 minutes long each week but sometimes I am in need of a little OTT cheesy tv to relax and laugh at. Mr P thinks its stupid and that I am crazy when I snort with laughter in my coffee while watching it. I love cheesy USA tv, I really can’t help it.
We were so excited this week to get asked to review some Mayoral girl designer clothing for Missy Moo. She took it in stride too smiling and having fun with the camera. I was impressed. I thought it was going to take me hours trying to get her to pose and smile. She even pointed to her butterfly hair clips and asked for one in her hair. A true model in the making, I shutter to think. lol
I made this Fruit Puff Pastry Tart for an afternoon treat the other day. I literally had some left over puff pastry and thought I would just throw some brown sugar on top and bake. Then I found some fruit in the fridge too and this recipe was born. I love when a recipe comes from nothing but the remnants of the fridge. They are the best kind and it took me five minutes to make up and ten minutes to bake. Boom, you have yourself a tasty treat for the whole family.
I am so excited that I have been asked to cohost Me & Mine family portrait project over at Dear Beautiful along side so many amazing bloggers I love and admire. I would love it if you joined in with your family captures, it opens up tomorrow until mid February. You can link up from my blog post or any other cohosts if you like. It was such a great project to be involved with last year and really made me get out from behind the camera and get in the photos with my kids and husband without it I wouldn’t have some many snapshots and great memories of all of us together.
